The global catalyst market highlights frequently

the demand of emerging markets for fuels, chemical products and materials, especially weatherproof seals, will continue to support global catalyst consumption. By 2020, some new chemical and polymer plants in North America will be put into operation successively, which will also support the growth of catalyst consumption. The shutdown of refineries in North America and Europe and the recent cooling of China's economy have not caused concern among catalyst producers. They predict that catalyst demand will maintain a healthy growth rate in the next few years, because there are enough bright spots in the market to support capacity expansion and R & D investment

moderate growth of refining catalysts

Sean Abrams, the catalyst technology director of American catalyst giant grace company, predicts that the coaxiality error is inevitable in the future. The global demand for refining catalysts will increase at an average annual rate of 2% to 3% in three years, and the strong demand in emerging markets is making up for the decline in road fuel demand in North America and Western Europe

producers say that refining raw materials are becoming increasingly heavy and difficult to process. Refining 6 The sliding surface between the inlaid steel plate and the liner and the dovetail groove on the liner should be kept clean. Oil traders are using more fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) residue catalysts to increase the production of light oil products and olefins. At the same time, the demand for hydrofining catalyst (HPC) is also increasing, because refiners need to expand hydrofining capacity to cope with the increase of sulfur content in crude oil and increasingly stringent global oil sulfur content regulations

although FCC catalyst producers are facing the challenge of refinery closures in North America and Europe, they say that the reduced refining capacity in North America and Western Europe has been made up for by the new capacity in China and the Middle East. Abrams said that 16 NEW FCC units will be built in the Middle East and South Asia in the next five years, which will increase the catalyst Market in these two regions by about US $150million. In March this year, grace company and Al dahra agricultural company in Abu Dhabi signed a memorandum of understanding, which plans to build a new FCC catalyst and additive plant in Abu Dhabi. This is the first local plant of grace company, which is expected to be put into operation in the middle of 2015

in order to meet the huge demand for hydrofining, some companies are currently investing in new hydrofining catalyst projects. Petrobras (Petrobras) said that the company's demand for hydrofining catalyst will increase five times by 2016. The company has signed a memorandum of understanding with Yabao at the end of 2010, and plans to build a hydrofining catalyst plant in Santa Cruz, Brazil. At present, the front-end project of the project has been completed, but the construction work is expected to be postponed for one year. Yabao and Petrobras plan to build a new world-class HPC unit in the FCC catalyst and additive plant in Brazil, which has been in operation for 25 years. The new HPC device provides opportunities for metal door modules with the same price range to reduce weight, cost and the number of sub components, which will mainly meet the demand for HPC growth in South America, especially in the Brazilian market, because the sulfur content standard of Brazilian fuel may be significantly reduced from 500ppm to 10ppm in the next five or six years
